I love a good living room–Greg not so much. I like a place to visit with people sans TV. It is always the place I go to spend time in the Bible and to spend time with God. I want it to be cozy and beautiful. Here’s the before and after of our living room (or should I say my living room since Greg doesn’t spend time there!) The first 3 pictures are the color on the walls before, and the remaining pics are the after color. The first pic includes the old carpet.
My mother has a full basement in her home that is full of forgotten treasures. I took some time in my last visit to search through with a new eye. Things that seem like junk can often become beautiful finds. I found many antique wood frames that were dingy and dirty, and I cleaned and painted them with my acrylics and paint colors from other parts of the house. Those junky finds are now on my walls.
My style is eclectic. I love hand-me downs–antiques and others. It is a pleasure for me to have pieces that mean something. I am not afraid to repaint furniture, and I love to move furniture (I get that from my dad.) What I love about our new house is that we have not purchased any new furniture–just spread out for a bit less clutter.
Very grateful for a place to welcome people.
